#1. Out of character to be so obvious. You need to be more subtle. Locate a partially blocked artery in his brain, then just pinch it off. Bang, he's down and it's over."
- Mara Jade Skywalker - Author: Michael A. Stackpole
Out Of Character quotes by Michael A. Stackpole
#2. The thing about you, her mother used to say, is that you never act out of character. You have no originality. But Nigora knew this was not true. Because she was going to act out of character, She was going (thought Nigora) to be herself. And yet: how could she? How could she? - Author: Adam Thirlwell
Out Of Character quotes by Adam Thirlwell
#3. Even though I can't tell others whether they should chase their marathon dreams, I highly recommend they do something completely out of character, something they never in a million years thought they'd do, something they may fail miserably at. Because sometimes the places where you end up finding your true self are the places you never thought to look. That, and I don't want to be the only one who sucks at something. - Author: Dawn Dais
Out Of Character quotes by Dawn Dais
#4. Thing is, I'm a funny actor, but I'm not good at being funny. I'm going to ramble for a second: I'm an actor who can make things funny in the moment, like in stakes or in circumstances or out of character. - Author: Matthew Lillard
Out Of Character quotes by Matthew Lillard
#5. Just because you're in the process of bettering yourself doesn't mean there won't be times when you make questionable choices, respond out of character, lack proper communication, or let negativity get the best of yourself. That's all a part of the process of becoming better. How else would you know what needs cleaning up if you don't stand in your mess every once in a while? - Author: Emily Maroutian
Out Of Character quotes by Emily Maroutian
#6. Who do you want them to think you are? How do you think people see you? Or don't you let them near enough to see. You make up their minds for them. Do you think you succeed in convincing people that you are what you seem to be? You make people meet you on your own territory. You don't help them. You let them verbally hang themselves and then feel better about yourself, your power, your own sense of worth. You have the power to alienate them and if they allow it, you might even manage to make them feel awkward and foolish--foolish for letting you affect them at all. Do you want them to like you? Or are you one of those people who "don't care what people think." You're not living your life for them, so why should you give a fuck what people think? You make people come to you and, when they eventually do, you punish them with your smugness. Nothing ever out of character. - Author: Carrie Fisher
Out Of Character quotes by Carrie Fisher
#7. You got a tattoo?" It's the third time I've asked Holder the same question, but I just don't believe it. It's out of character for him. Especially since I'm not the one who encouraged it. "Jesus, Daniel," he groans on the other end of the line. "Stop. And stop asking me why." "It's just a weird thing to tattoo on yourself. Hopeless. It's a very depressing term. But still, I'm impressed." "I gotta go. I'll call you later this week." I sigh into the phone. "God, this sucks, man. The only good thing about this entire school since you moved is fifth period. - Author: Colleen Hoover
Out Of Character quotes by Colleen Hoover
#8. No," said Hermione shortly. "Have either of you seen my copy of Numerology and Gramatica?"
"Oh, yeah, I borrowed it for a bit of bedtime reading," said Ron, but very quietly. - Author: J.K. Rowling
Out Of Character quotes by J.K. Rowling
#9. Say yes? There's no way to plan. There's no way to hide. There's no way to control this. Not if I am saying yes to everything. Yes to everything scary. Yes to everything that takes me out of my comfort zone. Yes to everything that feels like it might be crazy. Yes to everything that feels out of character. Yes to everything that feels goofy. Yes to everything. Everything. Say yes. Yes. - Author: Shonda Rhimes
Out Of Character quotes by Shonda Rhimes
#10. In real life people do occasionally act out of character or do things we wouldn't normally expect them to do. In fiction, there should be a good reason for a character to do something outside of the ordinary. - Author: Craig Hart
Out Of Character quotes by Craig Hart
#11. It's really interesting that whenever you do something that is so out of character, like having an emotional outburst, that you don't get in trouble. - Author: Beth Henley
Out Of Character quotes by Beth Henley
#12. Be spontaneous! When was the last time you did something completely out of character? You have to open yourself to trying new things, especially those that you may previously never have thought of doing, or had been too hesitant to attempt. This is how you open doors of opportunity for positive growth. When we try new experiences, we allow ourselves to feel again. Everything in life can't be planned. Sometimes you just need to let your hair down and live in the moment. Being spontaneous will keep your life interesting and exciting. So instead of saying no, start saying yes! - Author: Anonymous
Out Of Character quotes by Anonymous
#13. My God! You really like her,don't you? I knew you were attracted to the woman, but you really like her.I should have known. From the moment you returned to camp that night, grumbling about how the woman in this area were too damn pretty, I knew a female had finally burrowed underneath that hardened exterior. I just never dreamed you would also get to her."
"I hope I'm around when a woman finally lays claim to your sanity. With your impetuous personality,your actions will be far more out of character than mine."
Tyr clapped his mug on the table and threw his hands up in the air. "Not me. I swore an oath against women and commitments, and it is an oath I intend to keep.But you,my friend, are not me and do not have my reasons for rejecting happiness.Go to her, a woman like that would forgive a man, she might even find life in a stone. So much so,that she may even consider marrying him. Of course,he might have to grovel a little."
Ranulf pushed himself up,wishing Tyr was correct.Unfortunately, Bronwyn wasn't about to marry a man like him, not before and certainly not now. "I'm going to take a walk. - Author: Michele Sinclair
Out Of Character quotes by Michele Sinclair
#14. Neither parenting, Christian education, heritage, nor fine church involvement can alter anyone's essential sin nature. To lie, make self-centered choices, be destructive, or be deeply hurtful to oneself or others may be "out of character," but it is not outside of any human being's nature. - Author: Rick Horne
Out Of Character quotes by Rick Horne
#15. It's the revelatory aspect, the gradual unfurling of another person, the sense of exploration and discovery that comes from passing a day in the company of a stranger because a stranger cannot judge fully. They're only privy to what another gives them, because the more knowledge one has the less negative space there is - the greater the risk of becoming bland and stale, of being forever trapped inside the box of one's self and never being able to escape it without another wondering what's wrong, wondering why this being they know so well is acting out of character. - Author: Adam Gallari
Out Of Character quotes by Adam Gallari
#16. We greeted the guests and mingled with everyone until dinner was served. Mia stood up and addressed the crowd, something extremely out of character for her. I thought for sure she expected me to make the announcement. She took my hand in hers before she started her speech.

"Thank you, everyone, for being here. Will and I feel extremely grateful for having family and friends to share this day with." She picked up her glass, raised it, and very quickly said, "I'm drinking apple cider because I'm pregnant! So cheers to family and making it bigger!"

"Cheers!" I said with the crowd and clanked my glass with Mia's.

"How was that?" she said.

"Great, honey." It may very well have been the worst wedding speech ever.

Two people immediately rushed our table - Mia's mom and Tyler. Tyler arrived first, but Liz, who only came up to Tyler's waist, stomped on his foot and then cut in front of him. She glared at us from the other side of the table.

"Mom, I was going to tell you. - Author: Renee Carlino
Out Of Character quotes by Renee Carlino
#17. I find it quite easy to get in and out of character. I don't know why - I guess it's my job. - Author: Sophie Turner
Out Of Character quotes by Sophie Turner
#18. That's stupid," Luke says sharply, totally out of character, and shoots Laura a look that makes her flush red. "First of all, she's not ugly-pretty, she's just normal pretty. What a dumb thing to say. And second, she's different from the average girl 'cause she doesn't even need makeup."
Silence. Luke looks down at his arm and twirls the leather strap around his wrist. I nudge him, and when he looks up at me, I mouth Thank you, not trusting my voice since an unexpected lump has found its way to my throat. - Author: Alecia Whitaker
Out Of Character quotes by Alecia Whitaker
#19. But it wasn't. They both knew that. Darling wasn't sure if it, or he, would ever be all right again. "Have you ever felt lost, Mari?" He folded his hands in front of him in a somber pose that was out of character for him. "Yes, I have. And I know that place of crazy where you asphyxiate every time reality crashes down and you see the nightmare that has become your life. The darkness that swallows you whole until you fear you'll never see light again." Darling paused by his side. "How did you find your way home?" "I didn't." Maris reached out and brushed a strand of Darling's hair back from his mask. "My best friend found me wandering in the darkness and carried me back to the light." Darling - Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Out Of Character quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#20. It's sort of liberating, doing something so entirely out of character. - Author: Karole Cozzo
Out Of Character quotes by Karole Cozzo
#21. But you have said it too often, Mr. Benedict!" said Mrs. Perumal in an imperious tone that was quite out of character. "And if you continue in this vein, I'm afraid we'll be compelled to cut our visit short. Surely there are other establishments that would host an entire troup of guests - indefinitely and without reward - and not feel obliged to apologize for it! - Author: Trenton Lee Stewart
Out Of Character quotes by Trenton Lee Stewart
#22. I like a naturalism to my dialogue and my comedy. I would rather have a few jokes sail by that might be more subtle than have every single joke hit hard. I would rather the comedy come out of character as opposed to feeling forced. Even if you're giving some laughs up for it. - Author: Jon Favreau
Out Of Character quotes by Jon Favreau
#23. James Franco is a Method actor. I respect Method actors, but he never snapped out of character. Whenever we'd have to get in the ring for boxing scenes, and even during practice, the dude was full-on hitting me. - Author: Tyrese Gibson
Out Of Character quotes by Tyrese Gibson
#24. You're telling me that Acheron, my boss, the really tall Atlantean pain in most of our asses, actually authorized the killing of a human?" – Sundown
"I can see your confusion. It is highly out of character for him. But since she's been killing off Hunters…I guess he figures it's tit for tat. Or maybe he's just having a really bad day." – Zarek - Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Out Of Character quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#25. Indeed, wounded loved can make for fierce vengeance. And, from what I know of Anissa, it does seem a bit out of character for her to behave so spitefully, so I'd like to think that she really is just deeply hurt, angry and looking for some way to injure me back ... I hope she knows how well she's succeeded. - Author: Zack Love
Out Of Character quotes by Zack Love
#26. You have to impress him! Be independent and plucky, but often do things that are moronic and out of character! - Author: Alan Moore
Out Of Character quotes by Alan Moore
#27. According to Free Trait Theory, we are born and culturally endowed with certain personality traits - introversion, for example - but we can and do act out of character in the service of "core personal projects."
In other words, introverts are capable of acting like extroverts for the sake of work they consider important, people they love, or anything they value highly. Free Trait Theory explains why an introvert might throw his extroverted wife a surprise party or join the PTA at his daughter's school. It explains how it's possible for an extroverted scientist to behave with reserve in her laboratory, for an agreeable person to act hard-nosed during a business negotiation, and for a cantankerous uncle to treat his niece tenderly when he takes her out for ice cream. - Author: Susan Cain
Out Of Character quotes by Susan Cain
#28. I'm a bug on acting, which distinguishes Second City from a lot of other revues. It comes from the character, the behavior, and not from the jokes. I don't think jokes are funny. Humor comes out of character and out of situations the character is in. - Author: Bernard Sahlins
Out Of Character quotes by Bernard Sahlins
#29. In real life, we do things out of character, constantly. A couple of days ago, my shoes were hurting, so I walked barefoot through New York. Someone who has known me my whole life would think that was so out of character. But I did it because of the circumstances. - Author: Allison Williams
Out Of Character quotes by Allison Williams
#30. Even if you surprise yourself with the strength of your own emotions and sudden resolve, it probably wasn't so sudden after all. You were probably squashing down weeks, months or even years of irritation triggered by your job. To your unconscious mind, it wouldn't come as a surprise at all! Emotionally intelligent people understand that we don't always understand our own actions a lot of the time, and they aren't scared to admit it either. People with high EQs respect the way in which the conscious and unconscious minds work together. Even when they end up doing something 'out of character,' they trust that there is a reason for their behaviour, and even if the final result is less than perfect, they resolve to learn from it. The unconscious mind doesn't - Author: Alan Schmidt
Out Of Character quotes by Alan Schmidt
#31. You're breaking out of character, again. - Author: Dave Eggers
Out Of Character quotes by Dave Eggers
#32. Strange weather brings out strange behavior. As a Bunsen burner applied to a crucible will bring about an exchange of electrons, the division of some compounds and the unification of others, so a heatwave will act upon people. It lays them bare, it wears down their guard. They start behaving not unusually but unguardedly. They act not so much out of character but deep within it. - Author: Maggie O'Farrell
Out Of Character quotes by Maggie O'Farrell
#33. And it would be a bit out of character. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan may have started out as a reformer, but he really enjoys being seen as a larger-than-life tough-guy figure. He doesn't go on photographed hunting expeditions, for instance. But he does have hero moments, such as when his convoy stopped in the middle of the Bosphorus Bridge and he allegedly talked down a jumper, prevented him from committing suicide. - Author: Peter Kenyon
Out Of Character quotes by Peter Kenyon
#34. Novels usually evolve out of 'character.' Characters generate stories, and the shape of a novel is entirely imagined but should have an aesthetic coherence. - Author: Joyce Carol Oates
Out Of Character quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#35. The anger that you see expressed out there in Los Angeles, in my district this evening, is a righteous anger, and it's difficult for me to say to the people, "Don't be angry." When people are angry and enraged, they do do senseless things. They do act even sometimes out of character, and that's why it is the responsibility of America to try and avoid putting people in these kinds of situations. - Author: Maxine Waters
Out Of Character quotes by Maxine Waters
#36. How many out-of-character things did I need to do, I wondered, before the world rearranged itself around me? - Author: Ben Lerner
Out Of Character quotes by Ben Lerner
#37. Sometimes I forget what I look like and I do something out of character, such as sing shepherd tunes in Aramaic while I'm waiting in line at Starbucks, but the nice bit about living in urban America is that people tend to either ignore eccentrics or move to the suburbs to escape them. - Author: Kevin Hearne
Out Of Character quotes by Kevin Hearne
#38. I close my eyes an lean into Ernest, smelling bourbon and soap, tobacco and damp cotton - and everything about this moment is so sharp and lovely, I do something completely out of character and just let myself have it. - Author: Paula McLain
Out Of Character quotes by Paula McLain
#39. Val's answer was as out of character for him as his presence here. I don't know nothing about birthing puppies, Miss Scarlett, but I can cleave the head off a Daimon without breaking a sweat. - Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Out Of Character quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#40. There is not a single soul that jealousy looks good on. Nobody! It looks ugly on everybody and it makes us act ugly - it makes us act out of character. - Author: Beth Moore
Out Of Character quotes by Beth Moore
#41. I did 'Shameless' on Showtime, and I felt like I really tried to go super-method with that, and it would just make my days really hard to get in and out of character. - Author: Laura Slade Wiggins
Out Of Character quotes by Laura Slade Wiggins
#42. I like making fun of myself; I don't want to make fun of other people, so I don't mind doing something out of character that some people might not expect me to do. - Author: Eli Manning
Out Of Character quotes by Eli Manning
#43. Did the rhythm of the train on the tracks somehow unravel her and make her behave out of character? Was she altered in transit, when her feet were not upon the ground? - Author: John Irving
Out Of Character quotes by John Irving
#44. Precisely because we do not communicate by singing, a song can be out of place but not out of character; it is just as credible that a stupid person should sing beautifully as that a clever person should do so. - Author: W. H. Auden
Out Of Character quotes by W. H. Auden
#45. Sometimes a man seems
to reverse himself so that you would say, "He can't do that. It's out of character." Maybe it's not. It could be just another angle, or it might be that the pressures above or below have changed his shape. You see it in war a lot - a coward turning hero and a brave man crashing in flames. Or you read in the morning paper about a nice, kind family man who cuts down wife and children with an ax. I think I believe that a man is changing all the time. But there are certain moments when the change becomes noticeable. If I wanted to dig deep enough, I could probably trace the seeds of my change right back to my birth or before.

But behind these and others, I wanted to consider what was happening to me and what to do about it, so naturally I got out the last thing first and I found that the dark jury of the deep had already decided for me. There it was, laid out and certain. It was like training for a race and preparing and finally being down at start with your spikes set in their holes. No choice then. You go when the pistol cracks. I found I was ready with my spikes set, waiting only for the shot. And apparently I was the last to know.

And if I should put the rules aside for a time, I knew I would wear scars but would they be worse than the scars of failure I was wearing? To be alive at all is to have scars. - Author: John Steinbeck
Out Of Character quotes by John Steinbeck
#46. Plot grows out of character. If you focus on who the people in your story are, if you sit and write about two people you are getting to know better every day, something is bound to happen. - Author: Anne Lamott
Out Of Character quotes by Anne Lamott
#47. I get some acting jobs. I like it other than the constant slipping in and out of character. - Author: Andy Kindler
Out Of Character quotes by Andy Kindler
#48. When people are skilled at adopting free traits, it can be hard to believe that they're acting out of character. Professor Little's students are usually incredulous when he claims to be an introvert. But Little is far from unique; many people, especially those in leadership roles, engage in a certain level of pretend-extroversion. Consider, for example, my friend Alex, the socially adept head of a financial services company, who agreed to give a candid interview on the condition of sealed-in-blood anonymity. Alex told me that pretend-extroversion was something he taught himself in the seventh grade, when he decided that other kids were taking advantage of him. "I was the nicest person you'd ever want to know," Alex recalls, "but the world wasn't that way. The problem was that if you were just a nice person, you'd get crushed. I refused to live a life where people could do that stuff to me. I was like, OK, what's the policy prescription here? ... - Author: Susan Cain
Out Of Character quotes by Susan Cain
#49. I've flown out of character so many times. In that sense I've been lucky, because I've been given the liberty to do just about anything I've wanted to do in my lifetime. - Author: June Carter Cash
Out Of Character quotes by June Carter Cash
#50. It is out of character for a country that prides itself on intellectual freedom to put the education of its young in the hands of the state. - Author: David Kelley
Out Of Character quotes by David Kelley
#51. If we hear, in our inner ear, a voice saying we are failures, we are losers, we will never amount to anything, this is the voice of Satan trying to convince the bride that the groom does not love her. This is not the voice of God. God woos us with kindness. He changes out of character with the passion of his love. - Author: Donald Miller
Out Of Character quotes by Donald Miller
#52. A bad laugh is a laugh for the sake of a laugh that's out of character. - Author: Scott Ellis
Out Of Character quotes by Scott Ellis
#53. The shreiking fight or the out-of-character insult endures forever, while the daily sweetness dissolves like sugar in water. - Author: Mary Karr
Out Of Character quotes by Mary Karr
#54. He got me to beg, even when begging was so out of character; he made me want more of him, even when I didn't think my body could take it.
He freed me, from the inside out. - Author: Marni Mann
Out Of Character quotes by Marni Mann
#55. If a person acts out of character, then there's one thing you can be sure of: there is something wrong. I have seen this so many times I have lost count. - Author: Alexander McCall Smith
Out Of Character quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#56. Cade Winston, by drinking this shot, you hereby swear to do something out of character tonight. Should you fail, you'll be cused to a lifetime filled with premature ejaculation.'
'Seriously, man?'
He held up his hands and laughed, 'Hey, the alcohol gods giveth and they taketh away. - Author: Cora Carmack
Out Of Character quotes by Cora Carmack
#57. I've read all the 'Game of Thrones' books many times over, so I sometimes find it easier being on set, because it can be hard to get out of character. - Author: Emilia Clarke
Out Of Character quotes by Emilia Clarke
#58. The easiest kind of lying is when you leave things out of a story rather than make them up. - Author: Ransom Riggs
Out Of Character quotes by Ransom Riggs
#59. We will martyr ourselves, suffering under the weight of a non-reciprocal relationship until some part of us bursts in protest. Suddenly, we lose our mind, and allowing ourselves to heap all manner of nastiness, name calling, patronizing, death threats on the "deserving" jerk who has it coming after all we do for him/her! As the final insult rings across the room and we regain consciousness, we are horrified by what has come out of our mouth. After all, we LOVE these people, and we quickly move into anxious terror that this time we have gone too far . . . this time we crossed the line and they will leave us. So, we hunker back down and the martyrdom begins again. It's a terrible cycle. - Author: Mary Crocker Cook
Out Of Character quotes by Mary Crocker Cook
#60. Life can become difficult when out of sync with your heart-felt desires. - Author: Steven Redhead
Out Of Character quotes by Steven Redhead
#61. An anxious heart is like a string that's out of tune. - Author: Naguib Mahfouz
Out Of Character quotes by Naguib Mahfouz
#62. The most successful relationships are ones with a really low negativity threshold. In those relationships, couples allow each other to complain, and work together to constantly repair the tiny issues between them. In such cases, couples don't bottle up their feelings, and little things don't end up being blown completely out of proportion. - Author: Hannah Fry
Out Of Character quotes by Hannah Fry
#63. It wasn't until I could get out of Stanford that I could sit down and think about my life, to do the things that most kids do, which is to ask who am I, what do I want to be when I grow up. I never got to do Dan Pintauro. - Author: Danny Pintauro
Out Of Character quotes by Danny Pintauro
#64. If you get involved in music expecting to make a living out of it, then you've picked the wrong thing to do. That shouldn't really be in your mind. - Author: Jarvis Cocker
Out Of Character quotes by Jarvis Cocker
#65. Do not be too moral. You may cheat yourself out of much life so. Aim above morality. Be not simply good, be good for something. - Author: Henry David Thoreau
Out Of Character quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#66. There is no way out of the experience except through it, because it is not really your experience at all but the baby's. Your body is the child's instrument of birth. - Author: Penelope Leach
Out Of Character quotes by Penelope Leach
#67. I'm extremely profane, unconsciously so, when I see something great for the first time; I don't know why, but beauty and profanity are related to me in the same way. It may be that I want to think of art in the vernacular, but I have no control over what comes out of my mouth when my eyes take in great beauty ... it might just be the reason I avoid going to museums with elderly ladies. - Author: Vincent Price
Out Of Character quotes by Vincent Price
#68. I pestered the hell out of everybody I ran into until I could play the guitar well enough to write and sing with it. - Author: Don Johnson
Out Of Character quotes by Don Johnson
#69. Actually, I think that a lot of the interviews and acoustic sessions and other things that artists fill their time with are really pointless and suck the energy out of the artist. - Author: Marina And The Diamonds
Out Of Character quotes by Marina And The Diamonds
#70. The housecleaning our bodies perform while we sleep is powered by the shakti that energizes the sympathetic, parasympathetic, and autonomous nervous systems to send instructions to the lymphatic system, the pituitary gland, and a host of other places in our slumbering forms. Whether it is blood circulating in the veins and arteries, a nerve impulse jumping a synaptic gap in the brain, our body straining while running the hundred-meter dash, or the working out of a physics or organic chemistry problem, our shakti provides the energy to accomplish the activity. - Author: Thomas Ashley-Farrand
Out Of Character quotes by Thomas Ashley-Farrand
#71. I write to please myself - of course, that is a given. But beyond this reach for pleasure, I know that I write for my countrymen, that they may be lifted from apathy and ignorance. I write because of a compulsion to make something out of the nothing that is my own life. - Author: F. Sionil Jose
Out Of Character quotes by F. Sionil Jose
#72. An idea is a light turned on in a man's soul. Comic-strip artists are in the habit of representing it by means of a light bulb flashing on, above the head of a character who has suddenly grasped an idea. In simple, primitive terms, this is an appropriate symbol. - Author: Ayn Rand
Out Of Character quotes by Ayn Rand
#73. He remembered Andrew's hand over his mouth in Exites as he backed out of their conversation. He thought of Andrew yielding to his prodding and holding him up when Neil needed him most. Andrew had called him interesting and dangerous and had given him keys to his house and car. He'd trusted Neil with Kevin because Kevin was important to both of them and he knew Neil wouldn't let him down. - Author: Nora Sakavic
Out Of Character quotes by Nora Sakavic
#74. Most people are pleasant when the world is going the way they want. But a person's character can be seen most clearly when the brokenness of the world has invaded his or her peace, when the way he or she thinks things ought to be is interrupted, disrupted, and dismantled. - Author: Matt Chandler
Out Of Character quotes by Matt Chandler
#75. It is all well and good for children and acid freaks to still believe in Santa Claus - but it is still a profoundly morbid day for us working professionals. It is unsettling to know that one out of every twenty people you meet on Xmas will be dead this time next year Some people can accept this, and some can't. That is why God made whiskey, and also why Wild Turkey comes in $300 shaped canisters during most of the Christmas season. - Author: Hunter S. Thompson
Out Of Character quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#76. The root of the black man's hatred is rage,
and he does not so much had the white man
as simply as want the out of his way,
and, more than that,
out of his children's way.

The root of the white man's hatred is terror,
a bottomless and nameless terror,
which focuses on this dread figure,
an entity which lives only in his mind. - Author: James Baldwin
Out Of Character quotes by James Baldwin
#77. In rational inquiry, we idealize to selected domains in such a way (we hope) as to permit us to discover crucial features of the world. Data and observations, in the sciences, have an instrumental character. They are of no particular interest in themselves, but only insofar as they constitute evidence that permits one to determine fundamental features of the real world, within a course of inquiry that is invariably undertaken under sharp idealizations, often implicit and simply common understanding, but always present. - Author: Noam Chomsky
Out Of Character quotes by Noam Chomsky
#78. He was occupied with the forming of a pattern out of the manifold chaos of life, and the materials with which he worked seemed to make preoccupation with pigments and words very trivial. Lawson had served his turn. Philip's friendship with him had been a motive in the design he was elaborating: it was merely sentimental to ignore the fact that the painter was of no further interest to him. - Author: W. Somerset Maugham
Out Of Character quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#79. As with most of my work, I started from the abstract, from research, building an intellectual model that slowly became internalized when the characters came alive. It's fascinating what happens to the model you've so assiduously assembled when characters are allowed to run rampant: things you thought essential are broken and other things are vastly improved. - Author: Lauren Groff
Out Of Character quotes by Lauren Groff
#80. The problem with putting off things you've always wanted to do is that eventually you run out of always. - Author: Robert Breault
Out Of Character quotes by Robert Breault
#81. My God, bless Thou me indeed, for what profit were it, if my name were in a thousand mouths, if Thou shouldest spewit out of Thy mouth? What matter, though my name were written on marble, if it were not written in the Lamb's Book of Life? These blessings are only apparently blessings, windy blessings, blessings that mock me. Give me Thy blessing: then the honor which comes of Thee will make me blessed indeed. - Author: Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Out Of Character quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#82. If you can touch your shadow - within form - and do something out of your ordinary pattern, a great deal of energy will flow from it. - Author: Robert A. Johnson
Out Of Character quotes by Robert A. Johnson
#83. You may then wonder where they have gone, those other dim dots that were you; you in the flesh swimming in a swift river, swinging a bat on the first pitch, opening a footlocker with a screwdriver, inking and painting clowns on cellluloid, stepping out of a revolving door into the swift crowd on a sidewalk, being kissed and kissing till your brain grew smooth, stepping out of the cold woods into a warm field of crows, or lying awake in bed aware of your legs and suddenly aware of all of it, that ceiling above you was under the sky - in what country, what town? - Author: Annie Dillard
Out Of Character quotes by Annie Dillard

When it comes to habits we cannot quit or patterns we cannot stop, anger that flies out of nowhere, fears we cannot overcome, or weaknesses we hate to admit
